Marc H. Gerstein, a long suffering fan of the New York Jets and wannabe artist with an aversion to starvation, started out as a litigation attorney but after having earned an MBA, he switched to a career analyzing stocks, educating investors, and helping to develop stock screening platforms (with an interlude managing a junk-bond mutual fund). After having worked at Value Line and various web sites, he joined Portfolio123 in 2008 and is Director of Research. He is the author of Screening the Market (Wiley, 2002) and The Value Connection (Wiley 2003), and is presently working a book on designing stock selection strategies. Also, he hasn’t yet thrown in the towel on his efforts to produce a satirical novel with a Wall Street setting. You can follow him at Twitter: @MHGerstein.
